The annual visit

The grove below our house is owned by Avvocato Finocchi who lives and works in Spoleto but spend the greater part of August in his summer house in Trevi.

Every year he comes up with Alveiro who tends them on his behalf to see what the harvest prospects are. I also work with Alveiro when pruning my trees as he has spent his life working the land and so it is good to tap into his knowledge.

They make a strange couple Alveiro and the Avvocato but it is good that he sees it as important to look after the olives rather than just abandon them as others have done around us.
